True Ventures invests in early stage startups and has three funds with approximately $600 million in capital under management. “I’ve known the Founder and CEO, Marcin Treder, for a while now, and have watched as he built his team across two continents and 12 time zones using the very platform they were developing. UXPin has excellent tools for developing early mockups using the included extensive UI libraries, along with animation tools to help visualize interaction on desktop and mobile designs. Commenting and collaborating are intuitive, letting everyone on your team contribute—and there’s much more in the works.” – commented on True Ventures -led round A investment Jeff Veen, Design Partner in the fund.
